The IMLS National Digital Platform & Your Library: Tools You Can Use

453 views

Published on

As libraries increasingly use digital infrastructure to provide access to content and resources, there are more and more opportunities for collaboration around the tools and services that they use to meet their users’ needs. To this end, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is making substantial investments in developing collaborative and sustainable technical and social digital infrastructure for libraries through the National Digital Platform initiative. In this talk, you will learn about a series of digital tools, services, training opportunities and resources IMLS is funding through the National Leadership Grants for Libraries Program and the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program. The presentation will focus on ongoing projects and efforts that you and your library can get involved in and make direct use of. It will also provide insight into how you could develop competitive proposals for projects that could be funded through this national effort.
